     Main characters 

Charlotte

A happy-go-lucky blue girl from Vermont who defines The Pollyanna. She unknowingly makes Vendetta look foolish and incompetent, so Vendetta plots to kill her. Despite her naivete and obliviousness, Charlotte always avoids certain death. In case you haven't figured out yet, she drives Vendetta insane. Voiced by Amy Winfrey.

  • Vocal Evolution: In the TV series it's more obvious she's voiced by a woman in her thirties. She sounds like a child again in the most recent web episode (made for 2012 April Fool's Day), so it could just be the mic. Or the dialogue for that episode was recorded years ago.

Vendetta

A wicked young girl who makes monsters, called "fiends", from a recipe book and uses them to take control of Clamburg. She spends her time tormenting the residents, especially her classmates, into submission. Voiced by Aglaia Mortcheva.

  • Card-Carrying Villain: An exaggerated example. She is obsessed with being as vile as humanly possible and feels good by doing bad.
  • Character Exaggeration: In the TV series, she's a little more of a bitch, taking more pleasure in her villainy, and tosses out the word "stupid" much more often.
  • Never Say "Die": Almost always says "I will destroy you!". In the web series, the only time she doesn't is when she thinks she's in hell. She uses "dead" more often in the TV series.
  • Narcissist: She even has pictures of herself all over her house's walls.
  • Pet the Dog: Strongly averted in her case. Just tell yourself that any time it looks like Vendetta's actually doing something nice for somebody, there is always a sinister ulterior motive. Though the fact that she keeps her parents alive might mean something.
  • Real Men Hate Sugar: A female example in the TV series. She hates cookies, gumdrops, and if she's eating ice cream, it has clams in it.
  • Slasher Smile: Pulls one in "Super Evil" when trying to learn one of Charlotte's "evil" ways - giving out cookies with a smile.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Clams, beef jerky, grape punch.
  • Tsurime Eyes: Puts on this appearance with her constant angry squinting, but her eyes are actually as large and round as the other characters'.
  • Villain Decay: Invoked.
  • Villain Protagonist: It's difficult to say whether Charlotte or Vendetta is the protagonist, but Vendetta seems to get more focus.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Her hatred of music in the last three web episodes is more like a phobia than anything.
  • You No Take Candle: Messes up her English sometimes, especially in the web series. Whether this was intentional or an issue with her voice actress is unknown.

     Fiends 

Grudge

A giant hamster fiend who works as Vendetta's sidekick. His role is to intimidate the students and give out physical threats. Voiced by Peter Merryman.

  • Extreme Omnivore: When Vendetta calls for it.
  • Flanderization: His sensitive traits, devotion and submission to Vendetta are more apparent in the web series finale and the TV show.
  • I Am Not Weasel: He's a giant hamster. He's been mistaken for a bear and a dog.
  • Minion with an F in Evil: First implicated when he was disappointed that Charlotte called her pet hamster her "favorite hamster in the whole world".

Scissor Fiend / Buttons II

A small black fiend with a beak that works like extreme scissors, cutting through anything. In the web series, this is the first fiend Vendetta makes for the intention of killing Charlotte.

  • Bad Powers, Bad Fiend: Subverted. It may have sliced Charlotte's house in half, but it turns out to be very caring towards both Charlotte and Vendetta, and very talented at making paper snowflakes.

Giant Kitty

A giant red cat, said to be the first fiend Vendetta made. Voiced by Amy Winfrey.

  • Cats Hate Water: He was totally tamed by Charlotte until she mentioned he would need a bath.

Rubella

A fiend who replaced Grudge as Vendetta's sidekick in episode 18, only appearing in the web series. The most human-like fiend in appearance, she resembles Frankenstein's Monster. She starts to view Vendetta as her friend. Voiced by Elissa Calfin.

  • What Happened to the Mouse?: In the last episode, when the fiend-dipped structures are destroying the town, we don't see her on the escaping ship.

Toupee

A talking fiend made to be Mr. Milk's toupee. The toupee fiend was made to convince Mr. Milk to kill Charlotte. Voiced by Dee Bradley Baker

     Family members 

Charlene

Charlotte's grandmother in the TV series who owns a shop that sells candy and motor parts. She's just like Charlotte, only older. Voiced by Amy Winfrey.

Viktor and Violeta

Vendetta's parents in the TV series. They have been shrunken down to fit into a hamster cage. Voiced by Dave Wasson and Aglaia Mortcheva.

Charlotte's parents

Stated by Charlene to be astronauts. They may have actually died.

     School 

Mr. Milk

A beige man who's the schoolteacher of room 4, though he never gets the opportunity to actually teach anything. He's the most fearful of Vendetta, and has a red Toothy Bird keeping him in check. Voiced by Peter Merryman.

  • Expressive Hair: Almost completely bald, but has a few hairs on his head that stick up when he's scared or nervous.
  • Expy: Amy Winfrey worked on South Park before starting her web projects, and Mr. Milk looks very similar to Mr. Garrison. His personality is the very opposite, however.
  • Hidden Depths: Web episode 14 and "Swiss Banker" shows he has a very nice tenor singing voice.

Marion

The nervous pale blue girl who sits next to Charlotte. She was the first to warn Charlotte of Vendetta. Voiced by Amy Winfrey.

  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: In a web episode commentary (that you can't see unless you won the Making Fiends Art Contest) she believes her glass animals can talk and eat.
  • Hidden Depths: The TV series shows she's been planning to escape Clamburg for years.
  • Huge Schoolgirl: She was an overweight girl of typical height in the webtoon, but in the TV series she towers over every student except for Marvin, and he's very skinny.

Malachi

The first student to appear. He gives Charlotte dire cautions about Vendetta and her fiends, but she doesn't understand him and ignores them. He and his family are Puritans. Voiced by Peter Merryman.

Marvin

A tall dark green boy. He's easy to take advantage of, which Vendetta exploits. Once an Episode he'll exclaim "My [noun]!" because his possessions are constantly being taken away from him. Voiced by Peter Merryman.

  • Disappeared Dad: In "Parents" we only see his mother. Marion mentions his father in her webtoon DVD commentary, saying his father works in a factory that puts stickers on bananas (which is why Marvin brought a banana to Show and Tell) but that commentary also showed Marion was an extreme Cloud Cuckoo Lander. Either way, this may have all been retconned.
  • Ow, My Body Part!: His Catch Phrase is "My __!" Once it was "My pencil!"
  • Verbal Tic: He'll always start with his sentences with "my".

Maggie

A Living Prop in the webtoon, the TV series shows us she's an Emotionless Girl who's lost all hope because of Vendetta's reign. Voiced by Amy Winfrey.

Mort

A student added in the TV series. He has yet to have any speaking roles, and all he's done is shiver constantly. According to his Nick bio, he's extremely friendly and gives out nonsensical advice.

  • The Cameo: We see him in the last two web episodes. He's not in the 2012 web episode, however.
  • Cloudcuckoo Lander: According to his Nick bio.

Ms. / Mrs. Minty

The substitute teacher in web episode 9. Shows up in the TV series as Mr. Milk's love interest. Voiced by Peter Merryman.
